This is the first Sunflower to open in the garden. Yes it is late as it grew from seed dropped by the birds.
The corkscrew hazel has grown into a lovely bush. Yesterday I spotted the start of next Spring's catkins already showing. They will remain tightly closed through all the cold and damp of the Winter.
No Swallows lining up on the telephone wires here but a line of Starlings warming them selves in the early morning Sunshine.
